Mixed Reviews For Cover Florida Health Insurance Plan

As Charlie Crist’s new Cover Florida Plans are set to roll out in the next week, people are divided in their responses to the new coverage. These new health insurance plans are suppose to save Florida from the uninsured crisis…  While the plans were designed to encourage all Floridians to be covered by a health insurance policy, many, such as school nurse Jocelyn Dubois, says it’s still too expensive for poor families. Others, such as bone-marrow transplant recipient Mary Ellen Ross, say the coverage is so limited that is renders the plans almost worthless. Still, there are a few, such as retiree John Stern who see it as a way to get by until he is old enough to qualify for Medicare. And Kathy Graham sees it as a way for her healthy friends and family to get “just in case” coverage. What are your thoughts on the plans which will greet us with the new year?

    It’s going to be hard for any individual state to enact a health insurance plan that will benefit everyone. We just have to be thankful that they are trying to do some good – and trying to provide coverage to at least some uninsured people. It’s going to take a lot of “baby steps” before our nation comes up with a comprehensive plan to cover everyone. I commend Florida and the various other states on their efforts.

    I’m not exactly sure what the Cover Florida plan is. Is this the high risk pool plans?

    Yeah, I called a broker for this new cover florida plan. He told me you have to be without health insurance for 6 months before they offer coverage. Why is that a rule? Doesn’t make much sense to me as an insurance consumer.
